In September, the Ruetz lab will be starting their first year of a two year fish survey in the Veterans Memorial Park ponds in Muskegon. The fish survey will proceed and follow plans to restore the connecting channels of the ponds to the Muskegon River.
In August, Andrya Whitten and Dr. Carl Ruetz conducted preliminary site selection for the fish survey through the use of kayaks. There is no boat access to southern ponds and limited boat access to the northern pond in the park.
